About Us

We are a very progressive department with excellent taxpayer support, equipment, and training. Our people have attended the Maryland Fire Academy, the National Fire Academy, FDIC, IAFC seminars, NFPA meetings and countless seminars. All EMS refreshers are conducted in-house by an outside vendor, and off-duty members are paid overtime to attend.

Our smaller department means you get to know everyone well and are included in all aspects of the organization. We have paramedics at every rank, from new firefighter to Fire Chief. Our two-tiered ALS system gives paramedics the flexibility to treat patients when needed or stay available when not needed.


A list is being established for multiple anticipated openings. Interested persons should e-mail their cover letter and resume to jignatowicz@pelhamfire.com no later than 4:30pm EST on August 26, 2022.
